About

This is a midnight blue Balmain evening gown with full, cuffed sleeves and a wonderful detachable chiffon mantle, which extends in a full cape down the sides. The cut of the dress is a simple and elegant column cut, giving the impression of height without being too fitted. The eye is drawn to the fluting drape of the chiffon, which is striking and unique without overwhelming the wearer. The mantel is removed by the numerous exquisitely hand finished button holes. Bringing to mind classic Greek literature, this dress is designed to give the wearer a commanding and elegant presence. It will fit a variety of occasions with very little accessorizing. In very very high grade museum condition.
